Eickholt named GLVC Player of the Week
EVANSVILLE, Ind.óUniversity of Southern Indiana freshman third baseman Kristin Eickholt (Van Wert, Ohio) has been named the Great Lakes Valley Conference Softball Player of the Week for her performance this past weekend.
Eickholt hit .600 for the week with two doubles and five runs batted in, while recording a .800 slugging percentage and a .636 on-base percentage. Eickholt broke a scoreless tie in the third inning against Lewis University on Sunday when she hit a two-out, three-run double into the left-center gap.
Eickholt, who scored three runs in USIís four games, helped the Screaming Eagles surpass their 2004 season win total with their 27th win of the season. She joins senior centerfielder Sunny Oelling (Valparaiso, Indiana), who was named GLVC Player of the Week earlier this season, in earning the honor.
USI (27-18) will play Lewis University in the first round of the GLVC Tournament Friday at 9 a.m. at the EastSide Centre in East Peoria, Illinois.
